Abstract: Marine protected areas (MPAs) are considered effective instrument to mitigate the loss of biodiversity in the sea. However, the management of MPA-networks is challenged by a lack of information of habitat distribution, and of how populations are connected between habitats and MPAs through dispersal of pelagic larval stages. In this study, the effect of larval connectivity on the ecological coherence of the MPA-networks in the Kattegat-Skagerrak area of the North Sea is investigated with special ... more
